| WHOLE FOOD NATURAL VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS |
It is very important for us to get enough whole food natural vitamin supplements in our diets. As an avid researcher in the health field, I know that most Americans are deficient in good quality whole foods that are also nutritious. The majority of the American population is obese upwards of 60% of adults are overweight. Daily vitamin supplements are essential for filling in the gaps of nutrient lack in our diets. This section primarily deals with whole foods that are important for overall health.
What Makes Whole Foods Nutritious?
I want to start of by defining antioxidants. Antioxidants are molecules that slow or prevent the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that transfers electrons from a substance to an oxidizing agent. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals, which can start chain reactions that damage cells. One reason why certain foods are nutritious for us is because they have antioxidants in them. Antioxidants may also help to prevent cancer; diseases and help slow down our cells aging process. Also, healthy protein, healthy fats and fiber are found in certain foods and are essential for optimum health. Whole food natural vitamin supplements are an integral part to maintaining a healthy diet.
What Are The Foods With The Highest Antioxidants?
- Apples. They are an excellent source of pectin, a soluble fiber that can lower blood cholesterol and glucose levels. Fresh apples are a great source of vitamin c, an antioxidant that protects your body’s cells from damage and helps form the connective tissue collagen.
- Red Beans. I found out that red beans are also a great source of antioxidants. Red beans, red kidney beans, pinto beans are all packed with antioxidants. Beans are an ideal source of magnesium, copper, thiamin, protein, and dietary fiber. Red beans also contain phytonutrients that may help prevent chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. Red Beans are an incredible source of whole food natural vitamin supplements.
- Berries. Strawberries, cranberries, grapes, raspberries, blueberries are all a great sources of antioxidants. Berries are relatively low in calories and fat free, so you can eat an abundance of them without worrying about gaining weight. They are also high in vitamin c. Berries are an excellent whole food natural vitamin supplement. They can also be used as an ideal healthy weight loss supplement.
- Nuts. Almonds which are my personal favorite along with Walnuts are both packed with nutrients; protein, fiber, vitamin E, riboflavin, magnesium, iron and calcium.
- Sweet Potatoes. Sweet potatoes bright orange-yellow color means they are packed with the antioxidant beta-carotene. Beta-carotene may possibly help slow down the aging process and reduce the risk of some cancers. Sweet potatoes are also a great source of folate, vitamin B-6, C, E and also fiber. Sweet potatoes are an excellent whole food natural vitamin supplement.
What Are The Differences Between Whole Food Natural Vitamin Supplements And Over The Counter Daily Vitamin Supplements?
Whole food natural supplements basically what was just previously covered. For example, Apples, Nuts, Red Beans, Berries, Sweet Potatoes and Broccoli to name a few are good sources of whole nutritious foods. All these foods are complete in their wholeness and not separated from their nutrients like a daily vitamin supplement. An over the counter daily vitamin supplement is made up of different parts of vitamins and minerals as well as preservatives, binders and fillers depending on the brand.
There are some liquid vitamins that are easily absorbable and don’t have any harmful additives or preservatives. More on what liquid vitamins are talked about more in the nutritional diet vitamin supplements section of my website. The daily vitamin supplements can help to bring the level of nutrients for our bodies up to a more sustainable level. I will talk more about supplements as more information is brought to my attention.DISCLAIMER
